“Man

YouTube has some videos you really should look at. After getting fitted with hearing aids, a 7-month-old baby hears his mother’s voice for the first time. His smile is enough to bring tears to your eyes.

You can find lots of videos similar to this online. You feel like you’re part of that special moment that the child is sharing with their doctors and parents.

In a few videos, the baby is tentative at first. They struggle when the doctor attempts to fit the device on their ear. They might cry before they smile with delight. They are overtaken by a range of emotions. They don’t know what to expect. But then, with restored hearing, the world opens up for them.

This joy that they’re feeling can be a reality for anyone.

Does the idea of using hearing aids make you apprehensive? You’re not by yourself. You don’t need to be a child to be a little cautious about this new experience.

Let’s explore how people of any age may cry tears of joy when they wear their hearing aid.

The Sound of Music

You might not even know. It developed so slowly. You stopped listening to music. It just didn’t seem as pleasant anymore. It was even grating in some cases. Turning the volume up made it even worse.

Hearing loss doesn’t just effect the volume you can hear. It impacts how you hear different pitches and tones.

Music is, as every musician knows, a beautiful blend of sound frequencies that blend together to create the sound that we hear as…., well, music. If you can’t hear the spectacular complexity of music, it’s just not the same.

But put on your hearing aid. Now, those tones which were once muted can be vibrantly heard. Music once again comes alive. You had lost that joy in your life, but now you have it back.

The Laughter of a Child

Is the sound of a child’s laughter something you can remember? If you’ve been unwilling to wear your hearing aid, you may have forgotten how amazing this experience can be.

Reestablish your hearing with hearing aids and rediscover those wonderful moments with your grandchildren.

Where Did All The Birds go?

Remember all those birds out in your yard? If you go to the park there will be hundreds. While some of their chirps are more pleasant than others, it’s something you might not acknowledge until they’ve gone.

But the birds aren’t gone. You just can’t hear these joyful melodies that so enhance your life.

When you use your hearing aids, you once again delight in the merriment of our feathered friends.

Repaired Relationships

Relationships can be significantly strained by neglected hearing loss. People get frustrated. They misunderstand. They tend to argue more. It can even cause someone with hearing loss to isolate themselves, so they don’t feel as if they are a burden.

They frequently feel all alone and disconnected from other people’s conversations causing them to avoid going out to dinner or other social activities.

Have you quit hobbies because they’re not as satisfying?

Your relationship with family and friends will be revitalized by the simple act of wearing hearing aids.

Get used to talking to each other again. Have long talks. Go back to spending time with the ones you love and engaging in activities you enjoy.

If you miss this in your life, it’s time to reassess that hearing aid.

Feeling Safer in Your Home

Does what you can’t hear make you feel stressed? If a loved one was injured and yelling for help in a different, would you hear them? Would you hear the doorbell, timer on the oven, or smoke detector? Perhaps you would miss an essential phone call because you couldn’t hear it ring.

What about oncoming traffic when you walk through the neighborhood, or a bicycle bell, or a pedestrian signal? Are you sure that you can hear these important signals?

These “what ifs” can make us feel vulnerable in places where we should feel totally comfortable.

But you can feel more relaxed and enjoy life more when you use your hearing aids. You’ll have peace of mind.

You Probably Don’t Even Recognize How Much You’re Missing

Hearing loss progresses gradually in most instances. You might have simply forgotten the joy of things you no longer hear.

When you suddenly hear them again, you’ll be astonished. You’ll wish you addressed it sooner. If you don’t think your hearing loss is that severe, it’s time to get it looked at. Schedule a hearing assessment and discover what you’ve been missing.
